I Woke Up Early On My Born Day…

Fashawn ft. Talib Kweli- Life’s A Bitch

…I’m 20 years it’s a blessing
The essence of adolescence leaves my body now I’m fresh in
My physical frame is celebrated cause I made it
One quarter through life some God-ly like thing created

-Nas

The opening lines of Nas’ verse on “Life’s a Bitch”, track 3 on Illmatic. A majority of hip-hop fans know the lyrics to the songs from that album front to back. I posted a “Yearning For Your Love” sample back in December, so I’ll just make this another What I’m On post.

I turn 20 years old today and it’s nothing special to me, just another day. This will probably be the most I mention about my birthday throughout the day. So check below for the link to “Life’s a Bitch” by Nas, and a special bonus, “Life’s a Bitch” by Fashawn, which was on his recent Ode To Illmatic mixtape. He held his own over those classic beats and he came correct in flipping Nas’ verse on “Life’s a Bitch:

I wake up early on my birthday, I’m 20, it’s a blessing
Goodbye adolescent hood, hello new direction
I’m in a new lane, from the streets I graduated
To money and fame, cause my life is entertainment

Well, I’ll just be reciting those lines all day!
